Bantos rods, also known as fighting sticks, are the primary weapons used in Bantos fighting. Traditionally, each combatant carries two sticks (or rods), one in each hand, but it is not unheard of to use only one rod, and leave one hand free. (ATL: "Sunday")
Behind the scenesEdit
As a way to literally 'take the edge off' blade training, these rods bear a resemblance to the training tools of chivalric knights, and the Kendo stick.
